(Chicago, IL)- New Dimension Media (NDM) has added over 525 programs to its CCC! streaming media service from providers like BBC Motion Gallery, the National Science Foundation, Ambrose Video and others-as well as original programming produced by New Dimension Media-as part of its annual fall content update.  Highlighted programs include:

  • New additions to the extremely popular Talking Maps series-available only on CCC!-bringing the conflicts, events and people of the Civil War into geographical context.
  • Profiles of the lives and works of 64 great American authors, from Ralph Waldo Emerson and Edgar Allan Poe to Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams and August Wilson.
  • Twenty new programs from the Geometry Applications series, providing real-world applications of geometric concepts throughout history and around the world.
  • Programs in World History (51 programs in the Flag Stories series, and 16 in the Time Compass series) and Language Arts/Science (52 programs in the Moko series) available in English, French and Spanish.

New Dimension Media is also expanding its custom curriculum services, which have already helped hundreds of educators strategically replenish tired and outdated supplemental resources with new and engaging digital content that boosts student achievement.

"We're excited by these new additions to our content catalog, and also by our custom training programs that allow us to support our adoptions in a number of new ways," said Jo-Ann Kratz, Senior Vice President of Curriculum & Technology for New Dimension Media.  "Every school that adopts CCC! receives face-to-face training from NDM representatives, but with our custom curriculum services, we also help schools continue to refine and target their use of streaming media in lesson plans aligned to the new Core Curriculum Standards." 

"As we have every year since 1978, New Dimension Media is updating its catalog this fall with the highest-quality original content and programs from top providers," said Melissa Moreland, Vice President of Acquisitions and Program Development for New Dimension Media.  "Personally, I'm excited by the Great American Authors series from Ambrose Video because it makes the lives of these great writers so accessible to students."
